Theres really no SUREFIRE proof of that, but we are able to collect a mild idea, we gather from Dealthy Hallows (And a little of Half-Blood Prince), that he mourned his dead family alot, missing his sister with all his heart.

Re: Unanswered Questions

Actually there is an interview where Jo states that Dumbeldore sees his family alive, just as Harry did. Unfortunatly I can't remember the interview. :P But i'll be sure to look it up.

I think this is the quote you mean.


J.K. Rowling and the Live Chat, Bloomsbury.com
Allie: What did dumbledore truly see in the mirror of erised
J.K. Rowling: He saw his family alive, whole and happy - Ariana, Percival and Kendra all returned to him, and Aberforth reconciled to him.

Re: Unanswered Questions

I asked this in another thread but I thought it'd fit here better...

How exactly did Mad-Eye Moody lose his leg?

4. Who founded the magical world in general e.g. Schools, Minestry etc..
1.well some of his where the pervells[the 3 brothers]
2.because they are purebloods,it is easier to track their ancestory than harry's havig come from muggle ancestory also
3.those families are a close group and therfore many of them were also pureblood and so the fewer the fewer males to be wed.
4.well.the wizards did!the responsible oones who knew what needed 2 b done!

Re: Unanswered Questions

If you don't know the answer, do not pretend to.

1. Harry's grandparents were dead before our story begins and are never described in the books. According to the family three Dorea Black married Charlus Potter and they had one son. But we don't know if they were Harry's grandparents or of a different branch of the Potter family.

2. Not being mentioned in the books is not the same thing as not being traceable. The Potters were a pure blood family and certainly well known. Lily's muggle family might have been less known, but we know nothing about that.

3. Those pure blood families seem to have been there for centuries.

4. I don't think the magical world was 'founded'. There just were witches and wizards. Hogwarts was founded by Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin. When the ministry was created we don't know either. We know that Artemisia Lufkin was minister 1798 - 1811, but not how many ministers there were before her. Before the ministry there was a Wizards' Council the earliest knowledge we have of is from 1269.

Whatever information I might have missed, feel free to add.

Re: Unanswered Questions

Snape flew without a broom? I thought he was using one.

Anyways, I wanted to ask if the same wizard can be the master of the
Elder Wand more than once?

It's been a couple of years since I've read DH, but I believe he flew without a broom.

Re: Unanswered Questions

Yes, Snape did indeed fly without a broom.

The Sacking of Severus Snape'No, he's not dead,' said McGonagall bitterly. 'Unlike Dumbledore, he was still carrying a wnd... and he seems to have learned a few new tricks from his master.'
With a tingle of horror, Harry saw in the distance a huge, bat-like shape flying through the darkness towards the perimeter wall.

Re: Unanswered Questions

I was under the impression that Snape could turn into a bat, I could be wrong though.

They always refer to him as being like a bat--sweeping around like a bat. But he never turns into one.

It's confusing because when Snape flew out the window, Harry mentioned a bat-like shape; Snape didn't actually turn into a bat.

------------------------

BTW this thread is for Unanswered Questions; you know, things Jo didn't tell us in the books or interviews.

Re: Unanswered Questions

Okay,

In COS Lockhart uses Dwarves dressed as Cupids to deliver Valentines.Dwarves!
This is first time we seem see them, and then they're never mentioned again!

I find it very strange, since vampires and hags are mentioned several times, even though they play no part in the series, but this is the only time Dwarves are appear.

Did JKR have some plan for them in future books, and just decided to cut them?
Dose anyone know anything else about them?

Re: Unanswered Questions

I've been disappointed since Jo wrote that little snippet about James and Sirius on the motorcycle. It was supposed to have taken place when James and Sirius were younger. She never said if she would finish the story. I keep hoping that someone might ask her if she was ever going to finish writing the story.

Re: Unanswered Questions

This has been bugging me a lot in my current OotP reread:

Snape, during occlumency classes, found images of the 100 Dementor attack from PoA in Harry's head. Now: Snape did not know about the Sirius rescue mission, and he was furious about Sirius escape. So how come he didn't ask about the dementors?

By then he knew Sirius was innocent so Dumbledore probably filled him in.

I have a question about the OOTP too. I haven't read it for a while, so forgive me if this is a stupid question, but... why did Voldemort want the prophecy so badly? It didn't really tell him anything he didn't already know. Or did he not know what exactly it would be about.

Re: Unanswered Questions

Kindly note what snapes_witch said a few posts back.

This thread is not intended to double the Little Questions Answered thread,which is now in it's 16th version in the Stone. This one is for pondering those things we never got explained.

From the opening post of the thread:

And to answer danno's question, Voldie thought that the prophesy contained something that could tell him how to defeat Harry.
